I hope that you are coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic under whichever circumstances that may find you.
My ‘ Day Job’ place of business is closed for the next 2 weeks so I am homeschooling my teenager and continuing with my craft business, as I do that entirely online.
It’s all a bit crazy though, isn’t it? I’m so thankful to have not only crafts to enjoy but also all of you to interact- the crafting community.
I took my time on today’s project as I have much more of it on my hands right now! For this reason, I don’t have a video tutorial for you. It would simply be too long.
My choice of stamp set will make you smile 🙂
MFT Party Animals
It was such a joy to spend time colouring, stencilling and inking and die-cutting this fun card. I just love those little animals!
I have to admit I had just received my gorgeous new Tonic Watercolour Pencils and I couldn’t wait to test them.
They were a dream to work with!
Let me walk you through the supplies and method
Get Ready to Stamp-
Let’s stamp –
Arrange all of the stamps on your stamping platform, ink with VersaMark Watermark Ink and stamp.
Without moving your stamps, Ink again with Versafine Black ink. Your images will still be sticky enough for the embossing powder.
Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Add your colour –
I also added some extra details with a white gel pen.
